Parse common datetime formats and a custom relative time format into a Pendulum object.

Project description


datetime can be many different formats and often we want to express a time relative to the current time, such as 10 minutes ago. This module is able to handle all datetime formats as well as our custom relative time format.

Relative datetime format:

For the current time:
Any other time:
    (+/-)(integer) (milliseconds|seconds|minutes|days|weeks|months|years)
    -1 months
    +3 days
    -123 seconds

Parse Datetime

To parse a datetime (not including relative time), you can use the try_parse_dt function. This will return a pendulum object

from datetime_parser import try_parse_dt

example = "2020-02-02 10:10:10"
example_obj = try_parse_datetime(example)

Parse Relavite Time

To parse a datetime or relative datetime, use is_datetime.

from datetime_parser import is_datetime

example = "-5 minutes"
example_obj = is_datetime(example)
